poll: NEW: Romney Picks Ryan for VP - Good Choice?

Saturday, August 11, 2012


Romney Picks Ryan for VP - Good Choice?

  •     2000 vote - No, Ryan is too Conservative
  •     1475 vote - Yes, I am more likely to vote for Romney

GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has selected Congressman Paul Ryan as his Vice President selection. Ryan is a Congressman from the 1st District in Wisconsin and is Chairman of the House Budget Committee.

Ryan is expected to energize the Conservative base of the Republican Party. Ryan is young, 42, and has worked almost exclusively in politics - he did work for a short period for a family business. Ryan was selected over U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH), former Minn Governor Tim Pawlenty, and Brown University grad and Governor of Bobby Jindal (R-LA).

If you hope for:

Home foreclosures
Depleted personal wealth and indefinitely postponed retirement
Endless deficit spending
Massive national debt and interest service payments
Massive tax increases
National insecurity
Racial divisiveness from the White House
Class warfare
Anti-Christian government activities
Justice only for Democratic party constituencies
Covert activities to undermine the Constitution, like the lethal Operation Fast and Furious
Dictatorial use of Executive Orders to bypass the people's representatives
Domestic drone use by unaccountable federal bureaucracies, soon to be armed drones to enact sentencing upon the public
Closed door scheming by the Executive Branch against the public
Migration of business and wealth out of the United States
Expansion of the poverty roles
Growing public dependency on government and cost of government wealth redistribution and dignity and ambition withering programs
Dumber kids run through the government school unions
Health Care Tyranny and government sanctioned death panels

Then your hope is with Obama's reelection.

I understand Ryan's own district is fed up with him. I don't think anyone Romney could pick is worth anything constructive. If you want to see this country go south again, like it did under Jr.Bush, vote republican. They are truly the gang who can't shoot straight. But they are pretty good at ruining the economy.

Harvey Beehive

Let's see:

When Bush left office, gas was $1.85/gal.

The deficit was $6 trillion less than it is now.

Unemployment was about 5.5%, but has been over 8% for the last 42 months.

Yup. Saucy is correct. The GOP is good at ruining the economy!

Stephen Quist

the cheney/bush administration was bleeding 850,000 jobs a month and Obama turned it around.
unemployment under the cheney/bush administration was approaching almost 12% and now nationally its around 8.2%
operation wide reciever under the cheney/bush administration and over 450 guns disappeared into Mexico unaccounted for.
the cheney bush administration bailed out the financial institutions and they never paid it back, in fact AIG took a well publicized vacation on the taxpayers dime while Obama saved the car industry and the ancillary manufacturers that supply the auto industry and the auto industry is paying the taxpayers back their money.
while cheney/bush could care less where bin-laden was hiding Obama took out the SOB............
And now the republiCants are pinning their hopes on an uber extremist rightwing neo-con teapartier?
republiCants have just lost the fall election

In 2010 Ryan dismantle Obamacare, humiliating Obama, and intellectually dominated everyone in the room of otherwise financial leaders and experts. It is the onus of good men of exemplary character, like Romney and Ryan, to rise and lead, especially in the face of the Obama nightmare. We are lucky to have men of Romney and Ryan's profound character willing to fight to save America from Obama's certain and willfully intentional efforts to bring down America. More diversions and desperation away from Obama’s abysmal record. You need a huge War Chest to counter all the lies this administration throws at the public, latest is the 8.3 unemployment number. More lies from this administration. According to BLS and Wash/Post America lost 1.2 million workers from June to July. That’s 42 straight months of unemployment over 8%. House prices hit by sharpest drop since 2009. Gross domestic product, the broadest measure of the nation's economic health, grew at an annual rate of 1.5% from April to June. "We tried our plan, and it worked" Be that likely voter and go to the polls on November 6th 2012 and vote the Blamer/Complainer/Campaigner-in-Chief out of office!

7 Things to Expect If Obama Is Elected to a Second Term.
1) America's credit rating slides further: Under Barack Obama's leadership, America lost its AAA credit rating for the first time since 1917.
2) The middle class will see massive tax increases: Congress has been at an impasse because Republicans want to cut spending and Democrats want to raise taxes. Despite all the talk you hear about the "Buffet Rule," it would produce a comparatively small amount of actual revenue because the rich are close to tapped out.
3) Gas and energy prices will be dramatically higher: Obama once said, "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." His Energy Secretary Steven Chu added, "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe." Is it any wonder that Obama won't drill ANWR, has blocked the Keystone Pipeline, and has slow-walked offshore drilling?
4) Obamacare goes into effect: If the GOP controls the House, the Senate, and the White House, it should be able to gut Obamacare and keep it from ever going into effect. On the other hand if Obama is reelected, there's a better chance of the NAACP endorsing Mitt Romney than there is that health care reform will ever be repealed.
5) The Supreme Court moves to the left: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 79, Antonin Scalia is 76, Anthony Kennedy is 75, and Stephen Breyer is 73. Replacing Ginsburg or Breyer with 50 year old liberals would be bad enough, but imagine Obama selecting a replacement for Scalia or Kennedy. If that happens, Obama would have five guaranteed votes on the Supreme Court for anything he wants to do. Once we get to that point, the Constitution might as well not even exist.
6) Get ready for open borders: Barack Obama has already bypassed Congress to implement the DREAM ACT by fiat, he's planning to break the law to hand out work permits to illegal aliens, he's openly proclaimed that ICE won't pick up many of the illegals detained by Arizona, and illegals are now being released by the border patrol sans proof if they claim they went to high school here.
7) Gun control will be a priority: Barack Obama filled out a "questionnaire in which he called for banning 'the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns'" and he let everyone know what he thought about gun owners even before he was elected with his notorious "bitter clingers" quip. His campaign website doesn't even have a section addressing 2nd Amendment issues, perhaps because Obama would have to admit that he's already calling for a reinstatement of the Assault Weapons Ban. Without an election to keep him in check, expect Barack Obama to "evolve" on gun control the same way he did on gay marriage.

This weekend has opened up a discovery of boy “Super Genius”- Paul Ryan and his ability to fool the nation and his own party on his economic fixes. Just ten years ago he was a full supporter of govt. stimulus and strongly urged his fellow congress to follow suit with what would be the current administrations approach. Boy have things changed. He has seem to have adopted the Romney technique of saying the opposite of what he thinks he believes or should say at the time or say what he should say in order for people to misunderstand what he would really like to do or whatever it takes to get elected and win you over by simply saying something opposite of what he said before…do you understand? To make it a little easier it’s the same as being for something before you are against it. What is best about this technique is that it is on the record in their own words and by no means has to be taken out of context. Now what is needed is for the media to fully expose this junior fraud VP candidate for what he is; a manipulative, forgetful, elite conning the electorate and for the time-being getting away with it. No wonder Romney likes his pick. He’s a chip off the old block.
But the ole Wile E. Coyote-“Super Genius” always got walloped in the end. I can only hope Mr. Ryan has the same result.

And on a side note, with all those stats, then why did Bush have such a low approval rating?

Paul Ryan – Five Biggest Lies From Liberals Unspun
We can all see how the Democrats are attacking Paul Ryan. Far be it from them to attempt a real debate. Instead, they are using these lies about him. Human Events takes the spin out of them, in this order.
1. No, the Ryan budget isn’t extreme – Many conservatives believe Ryan’s budget is too tepid as it doesn’t balance the budget for over a decade. The plan only reduces spending from the current 24 percent to 19.8 percent of GDP. As economists have pointed out, this would bring federal expenditures down to the average of post-WWII levels. In the Ryan budget, federal spending increases every year during the next 10, and revenue rises every year afterwards. The budget expands from $3.6 trillion in 2013 to $4.9 trillion in 2022—a trajectory which can be considered an extreme “cut” only in Washington.
2. No, his plan doesn’t favor the rich – What Ryan’s plan does is reform the current six-strata tax-rate system into two, a 10 percent rate and a 25 percent rate. It fixes the Alternative Minimum Tax (which Democrats support) and cuts corporate taxes rates (which Obama has said he’d be willing to entertain) to reflect rates used by competitive nations. To keep revenues stable Ryan (and Romney) have proposed closing loopholes (disproportionately used by wealthy Americans.)
3. No, Ryan’s plan does not destroy Medicare – The Wyden-Ryan Medicare plan—co-authored by a liberal Democrat—wouldn’t affect anyone over 55. Seniors who’ve earned their Medicare benefits would not see a change, and those under 55 would not have to ever see a change either—unless they voluntarily took part in a more competitive plan. Even then, Washington would pay premiums as you made choices, which, if you believe in the basics of free market economics, would bring down prices and improve service.
4. No, he’s not at war with women- The phony “war on women” attack is a vital part of any left-wing campaign against social conservatives. Democratic congressman Patrick Murphy of Pennsylvania says that Ryan “believes we should ban all birth control as well. He voted for that.” Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, says that Ryan “supported the ‘Let Women Die Bill,’ which would allow hospitals to refuse to provide a woman emergency, lifesaving abortion care, even if she could die without it.”Naturally, Ryan has never voted for anything resembling those accusations. He did vote for the “Protect Life Act,” which would have rewritten provisions in Obamacare to prohibit federal subsidies for abortion—something liberals claim is already codified in law–and insure that Catholic hospitals would not have to chip in for abortions. He also supported a bill that would have dulled the HHS Mandate that Catholic hospitals provide free condoms.
5. No, he’s not a congressional obstructionist -The president went a bit overboard, in fact, in a stop in Iowa last week, saying: “So, if you happen to see Congressman Ryan, tell him how important this farm bill is to Iowa and our rural communities. It’s time to put politics aside and pass it right away.” The House of Representatives had already passed a stop-gap measure to help drought-ridden farmers. In fact, the House has passed a budget, while a Harry Reid-led Senate hasn’t passed one in over three years.
These are only some of the lies being told on Paul Ryan by President Obama and the rest of the liberal Democrats. Human Events doesn’t cover the others, but they do have much more about these five lies at the link.

But yet still the answer is YES he was whole heartily for the stimulus before he was against it. And that is no lie. He's got you fooled. You don't know what to believe of what he is telling you. "Super Genius"

Over 400 independent economists signed a statement at the website Economists for Romney in support of what they call the Republican presidential candidate's "bold economic plan for America."
Five Nobel laureates (Gary Becker, Robert Lucas, Robert Mundell, Edward Prescott, and Myron Scholes) signed the statement which, in part, reads, “We enthusiastically endorse Governor Mitt Romney’s economic plan to create jobs and restore economic growth while returning America to its tradition of economic freedom.”
The economists also denounced Obama's economic ideas, claiming they led to an "an anemic economic recovery and high unemployment." They further assert, "his future plans are to double down on the failed policies, which will only prolong slow growth and high unemployment."
The economists write that Romney's plan is based on sound principles: "more contained and less intrusive federal government, a greater reliance on the private sector, a broad expansion of opportunity without government favors for special interests, and respect for the rule of law including the decision-making authority of states and localities."
These economists note that Romney would:
•Reduce marginal tax rates on business and wage incomes and broaden the tax base to increase investment, jobs, and living standards.
•End the exploding federal debt by controlling the growth of spending so federal spending does not exceed 20 percent of the economy.
•Restructure regulation to end “too big to fail,” improve credit availability to entrepreneurs and small businesses, and increase regulatory accountability, and ensure that all regulations pass rigorous benefit-cost tests.
•Improve our Social Security and Medicare programs by reducing their growth to sustainable levels, ensuring their viability over the long term, and protecting those in or near retirement.
•Reform our healthcare system to harness market forces and thereby reduce costs and increase quality, empowering patients and doctors, rather than the federal bureaucracy.
•Promote energy policies that increase domestic production, enlarge the use of all western hemisphere resources, encourage the use of new technologies, end wasteful subsidies, and rely more on market forces and less on government planners.
In "stark contrast," Obama, according to the economists, "has failed to advance policies that promote economic and job growth, focusing instead on increasing the size and scope of the federal government, which increases the debt, requires large tax increases, and burdens business with many new financial and health care regulations."
